Ashkenazi Interrogation Continues


Former chief of staff Gabi Ashkenazi of the Israel Defense Forces arrived, Tuesday morning, at the offices of the Israel Police's National Fraud-investigation Unit.

The unit is investigating the Harpaz Affair, a series of intrigues between Ashkenazi's office and that of then-defense minister Ehud Barak, which came to light in the course of the selection of Ashkenazi's successor. Ashkenazi is suspected of breach of trust, interfering with an investigation and providing information to an unauthorized recipient.
